COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The annual paver dedication was held at the National Infantry Museum in Columbus in honor of the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Pavers are a permanent place of recognition on the Museum's Heritage Walk.

Betty Sloan attended Monday’s ceremony to honor her father who served 23 years in the Army.

She says this is always very emotional for her.

“He was a great man. It's an honor to be in the military and to serve our country. There are no words to express it," Sloan says.    

More than 200 granite pavers were dedicated. The Patriot Guard Riders were also present holding American flags during the ceremony.
